(unlikely dreams)

zondag 29 augustus 2004

I've just downloaded Hello, a program which is supposed to make it ten times easier to post photos to your blog. (And it does, if you only want to post one at a time...) Anyway, I thought I'd play around with it by posting a couple of things. The left photo is one I took of Martin in the backyard while we were in Jacksonville with my parents. Cute, huh? ;) (You can click on the pictures for a larger image.) The one on the right is me in a cafe in Paris back in June; Faith and I had been walking around in the heat in search of clothing bargains and decided to stop and split a sundae.

Anyway, I talked to Martin this afternoon via MSN and he's home safe and sound, just very tired. He says it feels like America was a dream; now that he's back, he can't believe he was really here. When he said that, I turned on the webcam so he could see my room. That made it real again. :)

There's not much more to talk about today - I just spent the day deleting unnecessary files and backing up important ones, plus cleaning my room a bit and sticking the rest of my photos on the walls. I discovered that my new printer prints amazing photos, in spite of Dad's gloomy prediction, so there are a few new ones up on the walls, too.

Tasks for tomorrow: swim (yes, really swim!) in swim class at 8:30, go to my next three classes, then ride my bike to Target and buy a photo album. Maybe go to Publix too; we'll see. (Note to self: buy toilet paper.) Also, take out the garbage, and ask the office people why the Internet is running so slowly these days.
